Hi All,

I have been looking at the Bingo600 script above and have a few questions.

#1) Does avr-gcc have a homepage? The only one I can seem to find looks to be horribly out of date. (http://home.overta.ru/users/denisc/)

#2) Patches for GCC and Binutils... are they written by the maintainers of avr-gcc? Are patches valid from one version of gcc to the next? I guess it really boils down to is how do you know which version of GCC to use and how do you know which patches to apply?

I guess that is it, just general questions I have had about cross compilers for a long time now. I have been thinking about trying to build avr-gcc with gcc 4.2.0 and avr-libc 1.4.6 and just getting a feel for how I should do this correctly.

1. No, not per se. Yes, Denis' home page is out of date.
2. Yes. Not necessarily. Sometimes.

Sorry for the vague answers.

The only thing that comes close to a central web site for information is the avr-libc project on Savannah.
There, you can find the user manual online and it covers some of the whole toolchain. There is mailing list for developers of avr-libc.

However, for mailing lists, there is the umbrella AVR project on Savannah:
This contiains the avr-gcc-list, and the avr-chat mailing lists. All of the developers of the toolchain are subscribed to the avr-gcc-list.

FYI, the latest versions of the tools are:
binutils 2.17
gcc 4.1.2 (or 4.2.0 which was *just* released)
avr-libc 1.4.6
GDB 6.5 or 6.6
avarice 2.6

Patches can now be found on the WinAVR project's CVS.
